―Dalek Sram's motto
Mark Simpson Wedge (born May 5, 1990 [age 27]) known as Dalek Sram, is a British YouTuber who is into film-making, animation and photography. He was born in Leicestershire and has autistic spectrum disorder. His greatest hero is the late Gerry Anderson, the man who created many science fiction TV shows such as 'Thunderbirds', 'Captain Scarlet' and 'Terrahawks'.
Mark originally joined YouTube in 2007 with a different account, MsimpsonW, but he had to close it down due to a hacking attempt. He likes to upload videos about things that interest him or he's a fan of. His videos vary from toy reviews to animated films and he even makes videos about conventions and events he has attended, such as the first VidCon event in Europe and the conventions that have been held at the National Space Centre in Leicester.
In 1995 Mark was diagnosed with autism, which means that he lacks basic communication and social skills. He also suffers from dyslexia, meaning he can't read or write as fluently as normal people can. Because of this his school life hasn't been a pleasant one. When Mark left school he spent two years studying Multimedia at Leicester College and then three years studying Video and Animation Production at De Montfort University, earning him a BSc (Bachelor of Science). Although Mark hasn't been able to get a job he is an ambassador for the National Autistic Society, which means he helps to spread autism awareness in the hope that people will understand him and other people with autism.
